Encounter | Certificate in Bible

A One-Year Program (30 credits)
Program Coordinators: James Enns & Melody Deimert

This foundational year of Bible is designed to immerse students in the Bible by integrating excellent classroom instruction with experiential application and spiritual reflection. Faculty will walk with you as you come to know Scripture in new and exciting ways, giving you the confidence to know what it says and view the world in light of it.

Through classes, experiences and Impact Groups, (small communities of discipleship) your faith will be strengthened for whatever is next. If you decide to continue at Prairie, this first year will transfer into any of Prairie's two and four-year degree programs.
